PREMIERE : EUGENE BIRMAN – FIELD OF THE DEAD
Tenso Days Mechelen 16 May 2014
Latvias Radio Koris conducted by Sigvards Kļava
The award winner of Tenso Young Composers Award 2013 is Eugene Birman (LV/US). His new work Field of the dead was premiered by Latvijas Radio Koris on Friday 16 May during Tenso Days Mechelen (BE). Eugene chose fragments of poems by Serbian poet Dušan Vasiljev (1900-1924). He also uses the poignant graffiti that Gravilo Princip, whose assasination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria caused the outbreak of the First World War, left on the walls of his prison cell before his execution.
